Meningitis and Septicaemia

Important Information for New University Entrants in England

Meningitis and Septicaemia can kill very quickly.

  •  Cases caused by meningococcal W (MenW) bacteria are increasing in the UK
  • Teenagers and young adults have a higher risk of meningococcal W disease
  • The MenACWY vaccine protexts against 4 meningococcal groups (A, C, W and Y)

If you are starting university, go to your GO to get the vaccination before you go. If you miss out, you can still register with a GP at uni and get the vaccination there.

All new university entrants up to 25 years old are eligible for the MenACWY vaccine.

For more information, speak to your doctor, or visit www.nhs.uk/vaccinations, www.meningitis.org or www.meningitisnow.org
